Being Jewish in France, written and directed by Yves Jeuland, documents the history of French Jews from the period of the Enlightenment, when they were declared free, equal "brothers" to the virulent anti-Semitism of the Dreyfus affair and the stain of the Vichy regime's treatment of Jews. A startling, comprehensive view of a long love-hate relationship, the film was enormously successful at Lincoln Center earlier this year.
A complimentary French reception during intermission will be provided.
